Independently owned and operated. Very friendly folks and always a pleasure to stay and dine there. Look forward to April's and October's. Near State... More

I stayed here with my family, and we had a great time! The view of the beach was lovely, and the price seemed very fair. The pool was closed, but we were told that when we went to book the room. The room was comfortable and clean, and the staff was friendly. They do charge per day to use the... More

Despite the recent so-so reviews, we sill immensely enjoyed our stay. The rates are good, the food was excellent, the staff we interacted with were friendly and courteous and since we went for the oceanfront room, we were happy. Because of it's location, the beach is never crowded with foot traffic and the rates compare with other local motels. (They'e... More

First of all, I would like to commend whomever posted about the pools not being open. This prompted me to call the hotel directly and was told that they had a fire like most have stated in February, and that they have done everything to fix the problem but the Health Dept would not come to sign off and approve...

Room was comfortable and clean, and you can't beat the view of the ocean! The staff was friendly and helpful. Some areas of the building could use a little renovation as it's showing some age, but overall it wasn't bad. Well be back!

I am beyond furious after our stay here! My family and I were informed on the 16th of May that there had been a small fire and the pool was closed as well as the hot tub. (One day before our arrival) We were very disappointed because our 7 year old daughter was looking forward to playing in the pool.... More

My wife and I are at the Clam Digger Inn now and we are enjoying every minute of it. The staff is very courteous and friendly, the rooms are comfortable and suitably furnished, and the view of the ocean is fantastic. The restaurant has a very good selection and the prices are ok. We really appreciated the ocean view while... More

I received a call the day before check-in (May 16) telling me that pool and hot tub area were closed due to fire in laundry room area. I was disappointed because one main reason we stayed here was the pool, but I understood this was beyond their control. When we checked in on May 17th I found out that the... More

I took my mother for this past mother's day weekend. You could not use the pool or hot tub the entire weekend. The staff in the restaurant did not seem happy at all from the hostess to the wait staff. The front desk upon check out never asked me how my stay was at all. They did not even print... More
